Can you setup Remote Desktop Gateway and Remote Desktop Services on the same Server

We have a new Windows 2008 R2 Server that will be serving approximately 15 users for Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services).  

I would also like to setup the Remote Desktop Gateway Service as well, but I only have one server that I can use for Remote Desktop.

Although I am sure that it is not ideal, can I run both services on the same server?

I can find no documentation anywhere which indicates you cannot do this, but all documentation I have found assumes they are two different machines (for example, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd983941(WS.10).aspx ).  I cannot schedule lab time today, so I cannot try it to see if it is allowable.
As you indicated, it is no where close to ideal to have them on the same box.  At the end of the day, see if R2 will let you install both Roles.  It either will or it won't. :)
